car description

Alloy wheels 1996 Rover Mini Cooper 35LE, John Cooper Limited Edition, one of only five uprated by John Cooper Garages, Concours condition. Almond green and white. Special editions of the Mini are nothing new and have featured as part of the Mini's history since the late 1970s. One of the more exciting and rare versions, the 35LE was produced to celebrate 35 years of the Mini Cooper. Only 200 were manufactured and of that 200 only FIVE were made available to John Cooper Garages for conversion to this specification. The Mini offered here being one of these ultra rare conversions. Apart from the standard features of Porcelain green leather, Gun Metal grey Minilite alloy wheels and an elm dashboard, the John Cooper cars had Cooper converted cylinderheads producing 86hp (a 23hp increase over the standard 63hp), a special exhaust system, K & N filter elements, Koni shock absorbers, oil cooler and John Cooper stainless steel sill plates. This particular example has been the subject of a thorough restoration by the vendor to a high standard which has taken over 300 man hours of labour and approximately £6,000 in parts to complete. During the rebuild the Mini was stripped to a bare shell, and any corroded metal was replaced before the car was thoroughly re-sprayed in the original colour scheme. The engine was rebuilt with new main bearings, ends, rings and thrust washers. The gearbox was reconditioned by Mini Sport and the suspension was rebuilt. The original interior was thoroughly cleaned
